Tire Saver For Deere Planters
Ruin no more packer tires on your John Deere Max-Emerge planter. A specially-designed plate, called Save-A-Tire Spring Retainer, can be obtained at farm implement dealer stores to keep scrapers in place.
Costing only $2.50, the small plate comes drilled and with the necessary bolts to install on Deere planters equipped with heavy-duty scrapers, says manufacturer Bob Messer, of Windom, Minn.
According to Messer, "The problem the Save-A-Tire solves is that when heavy-duty scrapers are used, the spring sometimes pops out of the scraper bracket, resulting in a loose scraper which then turns around and hits the packer tire located right behind the disk that the scraper is mounted on. The tire then gets cut up and must be replaced at a cost of $25 or more."
The Save-A-Tire fits any Deere Max-Emerge planter, but is needed only with heavy-duty scrapers which are used in heavy soil.
